Highlights

Vizslas are an active breed and need at least 60 minutes of exercise every day. They enjoy long walks, jogging, and playing fetch, as well as dog sports.Vizslas are low to moderate shedders and need only weekly brushings to keep them free of loose hair. They rarely need baths and don’t have a strong doggy odor.Vizslas thrive on human companionship. They’ll follow family members from room to room and like to be touching or touched by their people.Vizslas aren’t recommended for people who work long hours. Vizslas can suffer from separation anxiety, which can lead to destructive behaviors.Vizslas tend to be chewers. Keep your Vizsla supplied with plenty of chew toys to protect your possessions.Vizslas do best in homes with fenced yards where they can safely run and play.Vizslas should live in the home with the family, not outside. Their coat doesn’t protect them from cold temperatures and they can’t thrive without human companionship.Although they aren’t recommended for homes with young kids, Vizslas are very affectionate with children and can make great companions for older, energetic kids. Training and socialization is a must with this breed. They can be difficult to handle if they aren’t properly trained and they can become shy and timid if they’re not properly socialized.Vizslas do well with other dogs and will even get along with cats if they’re raised with them. However, they’re not a good fit for homes that have small pets such as rabbits, gerbils, guinea pigs, or birds.To get a healthy dog, never buy a puppy from a puppy mill, a pet store, or from a breeder who doesn’t provide health clearances or guarantees. Look for a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs to make sure they’re free of genetic diseases that they might pass onto the puppies and breeds for sound temperaments.If you’re buying a puppy, meet the puppy’s parents — they’re an indicator of what your pup’s future personality might be like. They should be friendly and sociable, not high-strung or overly shy.
